Worst part about the GPU is that the Alphacooled one can't be fit with a HeatKiller.
It's a different PCB. When I bought the one I HeatKiller-ed, I made sure it was a reference PCB, unlike the first one. Of course, that first one was bought on sale back when I had no knowledge of water cooling. MAJOR UPDATE #3 - pump / TubeZilla install:
D5 vario #1 installed in TubeZilla. I had to use non-standard screws, as I didn't have enough for some reason, but these worked:
Rear view of D5 vario #2. The previously broken speed adjustment stick that I super-glued fell out again:
Prepping TubeZillas feet:
Getting everything layed out. There's a major brain fart coming up. Can anyone guess what that is from this pic?
Looking good, until I tried to slide the motherboard tray in. DOH! How did I not see this coming?!?!?!
Emergency plan implemented due to drastic measures! Since I won't start drilling holes in panic, I bust out the handy-nerds secret weapon, dollar store velcro:
Only six tiny pieces left in my stash after securing the stand-alone D5 mount!
Now how the heck am I going to do this?!?! Hmm, maybe that crazy 8-way adjustable fitting I bought from Daz:
Not bad for an improvised fit. The velcro isn't exactly stable, so I'll need to be careful moving this around until I come up with a better solution:
Obviously, I had to drastically alter the tube / pump location on very short notice. I'm starting to think I would have been better off with the dual D5s in the bay res. I still might go back to that, and go back to stock for Tubezilla with no pump mount.
